Dutch term or phrase: aanaardsysteem/rugvormer
I am not sure about the difference between these two. I believe they are both used to create ridges?
No further context as these are links of a website.
Many thanks :)

bed former
Explanation:
or perhaps "ridger". I would say these terms were synonymous. Huitenga's agricultural dictionary has aanaardwerktuig (ridger, ridging implement).

A deeper cultivation is then carried out with a chisel plough. In preparation for planting potatoes, a four-row bed former is then used to form the hills, and the annual cycle resumes.

Ridger:

So we're talking about potatoes (context helps!). It seems that the bedvormer is perhaps just one implement in the overall aanaardsysteem. I'd suggest "potato ridger" for rugvormer (plenty of Google support) (or just ridger) and "ridging system" for aanaardsysteem. My "Potato Terms" dictionary (FR/DE/EN only) has "ridger" (Häufler/butteuse) and also "bedder" (Beetformer/billonneuse), which could be your "bedmachine". Hard to say without further context. That makes three queries in one question ;-))

sorry, I meant the *rugvormer* was part of the overall aanaardsysteem.
